    Make your exchange go smoothly by following a few simple pointers.

    1. Please make sure your location is visable on your profile so members can see where you are.
    2. Please state clearly what you are wanting to exchange.
    3. Please state clearly what you are looking for to save on confusion.
    4. Please state if your willing to post or if it is collection only.

    When you are transfering monies

    As always there are certain people in this world who have no morals at all and intentionally set out to rip other un-suspecting buyers off. Most of us thankfully are honest and trustworthy and the minority spoil if for the rest.

    With the above in mind I think it's only right to give you a few pointers when buying goods off the forum.

    1. Never pay by bank transfer - You have zero comeback if the seller fails to send the goods.

    2. Do not send as a paypal gift - I guess this is your choice at the end of the day, but please bear in mind as with a bank transfer you will have zero comeback should the seller fail to deliver the goods.

    3. Try to get a good communication going with the seller by getting a phone number preferably a land line.

    4. REPORT IT - If you suspect anything is wrong please contact any of the ADMIN team and we will do our best to resolve the situation between the two parties. We will not take sides of the buyer / seller, however if we suspect that a fraudulent transaction has taken place we WILL report it to the police. In addition to this the user will be permanently banned from this forum and their details sent to all other UK Marine Forums.

    5. If you don't intend to buy DONT post and say you will and then fail to communicate. We monitor all buyer feedback and get feedback on a regular basis from sellers. If we see fit and its repeated on a regular basis you will be banned from the classifieds sections on the forum.

    While 99% of transactions go without a hitch there are some people who are out there that will always try to rip others off and we don't want them on here.

    The Salty Box Marine Forum or its Admin / Moderator team can NOT be held responsible for failed transactions. Thats up to you to stay vigilant at all times and look after the money in your pocket
